Every Woman, Every Child ... and finally, Every Adolescent!

 One of the potentially most important developments that has taken place during the past few years is that adolescents have been explicitly added to the UN Secretary General's Strategy on Women's and Children's Health. It is now the Global Strategy for Women’s, Children’s and Adolescents’ Health. This means that adolescents will also be included in the related Global Financing Facility (GFF).

IAAH has drafted a statement on the paper on Adolescent Health that has been prepared as part of the process for the development of the new strategy.

The Lancet Series on Adolescent Health

http://www.lancet.com/series/adolescent-health-2012

In 2007, The Lancet published its first adolescent health series, which highlighted particular areas of attention, such as sexual and reproductive health, mental health, and substance misuse. Today's 1.8 billion adolescents are more exposed to harmful alcohol consumption, sexually transmitted diseases, and other risks than in the past, and face other new challenges such as social media. The Lancet's second Series on Adolescent Health, launched to coincide with the 45th Session of the United Nations Commission on Population and Development, argues that it is now time to put the young person, not the specific issue, centre stage. Four papers analyse the role of adolescence as a foundation for future health, the social determinants of adolescent health, the potential of the worldwide application of prevention science, and the current availability of data on 25 suggested core indicators in all countries.  (Text from: The Lancet)
